NBC "The Biggest Loser" Nationwide Open Casting Call for their New Season

NBC's hit reality series "The Biggest Loser" announced on Monday that they are launching a seven-city search to find the next contestants for the upcoming season.

The theme behind the next season of "The Biggest Loser" has not been released but, producers are encouraging "individuals, families and former athletes who have at least 100 lbs. to lose" to take a shot to win a lot of money and get their lives and health back on track. Casting directors are looking for outgoing, charismatic people who are tired of dealing with obesity and ready to make a drastic life change. If chosen, you will have a chance to win $250,000, if you are the "biggest loser" of the season,  or even a very respectable $100,000 prize for the "at-home" contestant who loses the most weight after leaving the ranch without making it to the finals. Do you think you can do it? Are you interested? Are you ready to work out with Jillian Michaels, Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince? Well you must be at least 18 years of age and a legal resident of the United States. If you don't live near any of the cities listed below, and can't travel to the live auditions, you can submit a video tape audition here. But if you do go to the live casting calls, expect prize giveaways such as a one week stay at one of their various Biggest Loser Resort locations, including Chicago, Malibu, Utah, and Niagara, New York. There will also be local former contestants cheering on the crowds at some locations. Make sure to bring a non-returnable photo of yourself, and no one will be allowed to line up more than three hours before the open call.
